Bigbelly is the world leader of smart waste & recycling solutions for public spaces. It is a proven solution that is deployed in all 50 states and in over 50 countries around the world.
Founded in 2003, Bigbelly was determined to transform one of the least efficient and resource-heavy industries: waste operations. Cities were either collecting too often and wasting fuel and labor while emitting excess CO2, or alternatively, they were not able to keep up with the demands and overflowing trash cans that created litter, health, and safety issues.
In the following years, we evolved to offer a unique and complete solution by leveraging renewable solar energy and information technology. Bigbelly is a Smart Waste Management, Smart City, and Internet of Things (IoT) industry leader and is recognized as a C40 Cities Climate Leadership Group best practice. Industry knowledge & longevity in the market provides us with unparalleled insights backed by extensive data, analytics, and customer successes.
Today, Bigbelly provides a public right-of-way platform to deliver smart solutions & host communications infrastructure. Communities and solution providers share the challenge of how and where to deploy Smart City solutions and communications infrastructure in the public right-of-way without additional clutter or negative aesthetic impact. The platform modernizes a core city service and is optimal for hosting additional technologies since it is ubiquitous and where the people are. The platform is easy to access and can hide technology in plain sight.
